RPG as a Verb Instead of a Noun

This document usually focuses on the activity of participating in a role-playing game, rather than the specifics of individual role-playing games or game system (with some exceptions). With this approach, the term RPG (Role-Playing Game) is often synonymous with Role-playing Gam-ING (typically abbreviated in the online communities as RPGing) and is used far more frequently than Role-playing Game. If necessary to specify a specific game, then the noun will be used over the verb, the key will usually be context.
